The Basic Features Of Soft Starter Panels

What is a soft starter control panel? Control panels that make use of soft starters to enable motor control are called soft starter control panels. What are soft starters? Soft starters are an alternative way of starting machines and other pieces of equipment in an industrial facility. A soft starter is an additional device that can be integrated with an AC electric motor, thereby allowing the motor to use an alternative method of start-up. The main purpose of soft starters is to significantly reduce the strain put on a motor during regular and typical power-up phases. Hence, soft starters, as the name suggests, help to start motors with decreased power load. A soft starter is designed in such a manner that it controls the acceleration and deceleration motors.

Soft starters have a wide range of applications. They are frequently used in industrial and commercial sectors to control and monitor three-phase and single-phase motors. Soft starters are an integral part of many industrial applications because they help to increase the durability and lifespan of various equipment by reducing harsh electric stress on motors.

Which Soft Starter Is The Best Choice For Your Industrial Facility?

A wide range of soft starter control panels are available in the industrial market? Which one of those is the best choice for you? Consider this. There are compression soft starters that are used in compression control systems. Specifically, these types of soft starters are used for single-phase compressors in air conditioning and refrigeration units. For pump and irrigation systems, some control panels make use of pump control soft starters. Often, soft starters are compared to VFD’s. However, one needs to understand that soft starter control panels are more compact than VFD control panels. Moreover, soft starter control panels are cost-effective and are more efficient in start-up situations because such situations require only speed and torque control.

Also, consider how a soft starter functions. A soft starter initially applies more voltage to a motor. This prevents a sudden burst of power that may give unnecessary electrical stress to the motor and may also result in damage. Hence, a hassle-free and smooth acceleration of power are enabled, which protects the motor from undue damage and also increases its lifespan. Most of the conventional and regular start-ups involve a sudden spike or introduction of electrical currents to the motor. On the contrary, soft starters produce a smooth and gradual slope of power. The result? The motor is protected from wear and tear, is made healthier, and will not break down quickly.

Remember that some soft starters can adjust to the initial starting voltage, and also tothe amount of time it takes for the motor to be fully powered. Additionally, some soft starter control panels also utilize soft starters that employ solid-state devices. What does that mean? These types of soft starters control the amount of electric current that flows through the motor. What does this accomplish? The soft starter will control and monitor the flow of current in three separate phases, thereby providing and ensuring precise control over the power and electric flow.

Analyze your requirements and specifications before deciding which type of soft starter you should choose. For example, gather necessary information regarding various factors like amp ratings, torque specifications, starting and stopping requirements, the line voltage, overload protection requirements, the type of enclosure for the control panel, and the number of times start-ups are needed to take place in an hour. Based on this information, you can choose which type of soft starter will best suit the specifications and requirements of your industrial facility. Spike Electric has onboard an excellent team of industrial technicians who will be glad to assist you in choosing the right soft starter control panel for your industrial facility.
